With “Chaos, a User’s Guide”, you will:
– Understand why and how our world has become chaotic and see underlying rules in a seemingly chaotic world
– See how chaos theory can help you in your daily life at home and at work
– Learn with practical examples to smoothly evolve in a chaotic world
– and be part in the emergence of a new more harmonious civilization
In “Chaos, A User’s Guide”, covering everything from personal relationships to energy supply to the way we teach our kids, I look beneath the surface of the seemingly nonsensical events of our lives and unveils hidden patterns based on Chaos Theory and fractal images.
Through this innovative lens, I offers you a radical new strategy for your personal and professional lives, as well as for our institutions and organizations.
Pay What Feels Right
I’ve chosen to make the book available online, without a pay wall. It’s an experiment in abundance where I trust that when I give, I will also receive. (if you prefer an e-copy at the fixed price of $8.35, or order a paper copy on Amazon, just go at the bottom of this page)
In my personal experience, there are books I bought that ended up not meaning much, and others that have been deeply meaningful, even transformative in the way I see the world. Paying the same price for both, just because I didn’t know upfront, has always often struck me as odd. Spontaneously, I would have liked to pay less than the list price in some cases, and more in others.
This concept is very much in line with a trend called the Gift Economy. It makes for more meaningful relationships, even with people we don’t meet, like an author. Paying a fixed price is rather transactional. It doesn’t honor the personal exchange that somehow happens between us, an author and a reader.
Pay-What-Feels-Right invites us to pause and reflect on the value we bring to one another, even at a distance through a book. I feel it brings some soul back into what is otherwise simply a business transaction.
So here is the experiment: I give you the book, and you give back whatever it has been worth to you. And if needed, here are two tips to help you.
How does it work?
1. Put a note in your calendar some time in the future (say in a month’s time) to consider what you’d like to give back, if you liked the book. (This website will send you an automatic mail a month after download, but don’t count on it to remind you. These mails often get lost or filtered out).
2. Fill out the form below to download the book
I love the thought that at this very moment, no one knows what the book will mean to you, and what you will want to give back.
Just to be clear: Pay-What-Feels-Right is not “free”. It’s an invitation to give what feels right for the value you’ve received from the book. The content of the book itself is copyrighted. Please don’t forward the copy you download to other people, but refer them to this page instead.
